Roman Mayer wins first Walter S. Burnham Award

LINCOLN — Mount Abraham Union High School graduating senior Roman Mayer of Lincoln, has been chosen to receive the inaugural Walter S. Burnham Award. Walter Burnham’s 1919 will allocates funds for “rewards of merit to school children” through academics and involvement in community service. 
Mayer understands the importance of citizens taking care of one another. His experiences in the Lincoln community and beyond have taught him the value of giving of himself and in contributing to make Lincoln a great place to live. He befriended a neighbor battling cancer and helped the neighbor’s wife with snow shoveling and chores around the house as well as helping to pack over 20,000 meals for people in need in Haiti. 
Mayer has won a state wrestling championship and has been involved with the Eagles Youth Wrestling Team, inspiring young wrestlers to be good sports and work hard. An honor student all four years of high school, Mayer will attend college on a wrestling scholarship and plans to study business and compete in collegiate wrestling. 
Because of his enthusiasm and activism, Mayer is well deserving of the award and a check for $500.
